Hey, everyone. I just wanted to spread the word regarding a couple of upcoming events being hosted by our friends at the Holocaust Center for Humanity in Seattle. Here’s information from the center regarding each event:
On Tuesday, September 14, 2021, we will be hosting a virtual talk at 12pm PT entitled, “More Than Any Child Should Know: Holocaust Center Graphic Novel launches new graphic novel“, which serves as the launch of our new graphic novel based upon the life of beloved Seattle Holocaust survivor, Steve Adler. Through this event, novel co-authors Paul Regelbrugge and Julia Thompson, both team members with the Education department at the Holocaust Center, artist Sean Dougherty, and special guest, Barbara West, Steve Adler’s daughter, will explore the process it took to bring Steve’s story from concept to reality.
Steve Adler personified the remarkable strength and resilience of so many of our local Holocaust survivors, dedicating much of his life to telling his story to inspire students to confront bigotry and indifference and take action. In 2021, we began developing this graphic novel based on Steve’s experience during the Kindertransport, which delivered thousands of Jewish children out of Nazi-controlled areas and into safety.
Additionally, on Tuesday, September 28, 2021, we will be hosting a virtual talk at 12pm PT entitled, “Ordinary Men Revisited Three Decades Later” with author Christopher Browning. Written almost 30 years ago, this talk will look at the origins and initial arguments of the book, the critiques it faced in the 1990s, and subsequent developments in Perpetrator Studies.
